and enhanced trade. i'm one that's very focused on improving manufacturing here in the united states, and this is going to open up tremendous opportunities for our manufacturers. i want to commend those who have worked together on this and the obama administration for their continuing efforts to open up trade opportunities so that we can make it here and sell it everywhere, which is, i think, should be our focus. in addition to that, i think it shows how over time old wounds can be healed and new relationships can be built. i spoke earlier today with the consulate general for the state of israel in philadelphia offering my support and concern for the unfortunate circumstances that are taking place in the middle east now in which hundreds of bombs have -- rockets have been shot at israel. some of its largest cities as the targets. and this is a matter in which obviously much high levels in our government, there have been communications and the assurance that israel has the right to defend itself. but i think that we can see in this russia trade agreement that if we can get to the poin
to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each time he was gone to give a major speech on afghanistan, the west point speech on the command of the company pulled tight again during presidential debates. he kept saying it's time for nationbuilding at home. what was that tapping into? that was tapping into an emotion you hear the electorate can see in the polls. i'm not saying it's a good thing or bad thing, but americans feel as if we are overinvested abroad. then you look at events to which we feel we are the in the united states, that things are out of control, there isn't enough american power and you have become that much to that, which as any to stay invested as we were in that golden. you just describe between 89 and 99, which is a great unipolar moment. the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is that coming back again. you have to pick your fi
much a purple state. i do not think it is definitely a democratic state. we have to see beyond obama because his candidacy and election were quite unique. to echo what you said about congress, i think we have to find leaders of both parties who are willing to bargain. at the obama's -- i think problem on that, he does not have the iou's to call in. he does not have a lot of arrow's a dent in his quiver to use. but we could use bob dole, those people that solved a long-range picture and not just today. >> excellent. speaking of long-range picture, few people can bring that to the party then the way richard norton smith chan. going back several hundred years. >> oh, gosh. [laughter] thank you. it is an honor to be on this panel. i have bought more than once in the storm surge of words that has washed over us over the last 10 days, there is a tendency, cable tv has 24 hours to fill, the internet has everything to fill. there is a tendency to over analyze. two years ago at this exact point, we were all being told that barack obama was in all likelihood a one-term president. we were talki
really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way, global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. >>> coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
was the campaign? >> well, first it was a very close election in ohio and ohio was one of key states, even if we won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the techno

obama, what do you want, president obama won the popular vote, three and a half million. he won the electoral college by 126-vote margin. that's pretty substantial. he won eight out of nine battleground states. only lost north carolina by less than 100,000 votes. democrats picked up, held on to the senate and everybody said they were going to lose it. not only held on to the senate, picture up two seats in the senate and democrats picture up eight to ten seats -- some seats are still not called yet. in the house of representatives. so it was a romp for democrats. they didn't take back control of the house. but there's no doubt about it. the american people rejected romney and ryan. all right. talk about good democratic members of the congress, back in town barbara lee from california is and she'll be here today. so will donna edwards from the state of maryland and of course, eliot spitzer host of "viewpoint" on current tv joins us as he does every wednesday morning. and here's the deal. here's the question. one fin
the old order argument that the united states always have to be the leader and you had a president obama a candidate or a president who has made clear over the past four years that while he believes there are moments when american interests are vitally challenged, where it has to step in and take the lead, the bin laden raid cometh to the iranian nuclear program. there are many other issues in which he is perfectly happy to have the rest of the world step up. we saw this in libya and boosting the outcome of this to some degree in libya. this is part of life in the united states is described at the light footprint strategy. the idea of the u.s. does not have to be falling and to every single issue. so what the light footprint and what that not so good at? 35 miles from islamabad of course is that the knowledge of anybody else in pakistan. it is fairly good at getting deep down into the iranian nuclear program using cyberweapons and i've spent a fair bit of reporting time in the past two years on the question of how the united states managed to use its type logical advantage to going to do
obama as president of the united states of america, and, you know, as a country, it was a remarkable time. it was a different election. in the midst of a financial crisis, a crisis -- i forgot my clock, otherwise i would go on for 45 minutes. [laughter] a financial crisis that really started here in the united states, but brought almost the entire global economy to its knees, and in the course of that election, and with president obama taking oches, we really -- office, we really, as a country, were at a cross roads where to go next with the system that was a broken status quo. go back as a country to the stable financial regulation, boring banking after the last major financial crisis, the great depression, boring, but effective, decade upon decade of financial stability that had orerred in remarkable era of growth for the country. unfortunately, broken down piece by piece leading up to the financial crisis. would we double down on the system? take those banks that were so large and so interconnected and so politically powerful that our leaderships decided that any one of which, if

of representatives, president obama won the electoral vote. pretty solid. he won the popular vote, which is decisive. he won eight out of nine of the battleground states that we were told they were so close, they could have gone to mitt romney. host: where the polls wrong? what is going on? -- were the polls wrong? what is going on? guest: every night on the news, what led the news. -- what led the news? the latest gallup poll. they have not been right since they were wrong in 1946. i must say, nate got it right on the blog. host: good morning. caller: i noticed throughout the campaigning that republican politicians have like complete contempt for the republican voter. mitt romney went to ohio and told a horrible, embarrassing lie. that tells me that they feel the republican voter is someone to be led by the nose, who can be manipulated, who can be fooled. is that what mitt romney did so poorly? host: thank you. guest: i do not think they were taking the republican voters for granted. i think they failed to reach beyond the republican base, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing
-elect president barack obama. millions of womens votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time the body would have a power with a majority of women and minorities as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we could not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the -- majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so, i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women. out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like that. today, we have over 60 house democ

's an understanding of government that to me renders him unfit to be the leader of the united states government. if that's really what he thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what h
deadline for president obama is controversial have refohealth reform. the deadline had been to date california as we know has already created its own exchange a lot of states have not. the help the exchanges are slated to begin operation in 2014. individuals and small businesses will be able to find more affordable health care they can shop around to find what suits their needs. >> the president will congressional leaders from both parties to the white house for initial discussions how that might avert the looming fiscal cliff. capitol hill's top democrats and republicans will be hauling with the president to see if they can make progress for a deal on taxes and spending. this time the talks assume a new urgency because the clock is ticking. the deadline is set to run out at the end of this calendar year with the automatic tax hike in spending cuts constituting the fiscal cliff will take effect. they have less than two weeks to get it done. we will take a quick break. we will be back with more than a minute. if we can't let us go outside. i think we have a live look at the golden ga
be confirmed of secretary of state if nominated by the approximate president? >> i don't know. i'm deferential to the president's picks. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. senator obama voted gaps john bolton, alito and john roberts. he had a very high bar for confirmation. i have a very low bar. i'm going to listen to what susan rice has to say, put her entire record in context. but i'm not going to give her a plus for passing on a narrative that was misleading to the american people, and whether she knew it was misleading or not. >> you won't filibuster her appointment? >> i'm going to wait to see what the state department has to say, but i'm very disappointed in susan rice, somebody who knew nothing about benghazi, telling a story that was disconnected from reality that did make the president look good at a time when quite frankly the narrative should have been challenged, not reinforced, that al qaeda was dismantled. that's what they wanted us to believe, that al qaeda was dismantled, and benghazi was exhibit a that that storyline was not working and was untrue. >> let me turn to the issue o
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
diller relationship, there are a couple of questions that come to mind. the first is whether the obama administration will continue this foreign-policy pivot toward the pacific. it is my sense the general consensus is, yes, the administration will continue to prioritize and state -- the focus policies. the second is the extent which latin america as a region is factoring into the u.s. focus on the pacific. some countries in the region are certainly benefiting from the trade arrangements that i have mentioned, but what about the rest of the region? are we releasing much in the wake of strategic integration in the western hemisphere in an effort to were fully engaged asia? i think it is important to note that latin american countries certainly are not waiting for the united states to engage the pacific to deepen the relations across the pacific. we have several regions, a series of bilateral trade agreements between china and countries in the region, the two in other asian countries and latin american countries, and other recent cooperation between china and regional organizations. latin

you say, "i don't mean a model for the nation, i met a model for the states could i did not mean the entire arizona law, i just met the e-verify portion," i did not trust you. latinos voted for obama because they did not trust romney on the immigration question, they did not like the rhetoric. there was no reason for this, because like i say, the majority of the american people want to see immigration reform. this is something very important, and it shows why politics has to do with immigration policy. i think the anti-immigration lobby has been very effective in creating the perception that the conservative base is anti- immigrants. that is just not true. poll after poll shows, study after study shows, that the majority of conservatives believe in border security but also believe in immigration reform. before the primary season we had -- we commissioned a study to study immigration views of likely republican primary voters. your tea partyers, people committed to the conservative movement. as long as you have border security there, the support legalization, a path to citizenship,
